Hello! Because we value your health and the health of our community, the J and its programs have been suspended. If you have an immediate question, you can still call us 314.432.5700.

While we’re practicing social distance (and we can’t wait for that to end), our staff are busy connecting with our members in new and exciting ways. We’ve taken our community online to reach you where you are. Join us!

Garden of Eden

The J is a proud partner in the Garden of Eden project. The Garden of Eden is a Jewish community garden on the grounds of the J which provides thousands of pounds of produce each year to the Harvey Kornblum Jewish Food Pantry at Jewish Family and Children’s Services. In addition, some senior residents of the Covenant Place tend their own plots and grow their own produce. Volunteers work in the garden during the growing season, March-October.

If you would like to make a tribute gift to the Garden of Eden, please click here. In the ‘message’ field, please add ‘Garden of Eden’ to direct your gift to this program.
